Established 20 years ago, University College London (UCL) launched the Bioprocess Engineering Leadership Centre to train the next generation of leaders for the bioprocess industry.
For this, they were presented with the Training and Development Award at the IChemE Global Awards 2019.
Many of the projects are in collaboration with the pharma and biotech industries. Doctoral students primarily focus on problems that look into developing new pharmaceutical medicines and how they can reach the patients that need them.
In total, the Bioprocess Engineering Leadership Centre has seen more than 200 Engineering Doctorate graduates become leaders in the field. Some have even created their own spin-out companies from this programme, raising multi-million-pound investments for the industry and in return furthering the work in the bioprocess industry.
Proud to be recognised for their achievements, here are Gary Lye and Frank Baganz from UCL talking about the project:
Have you got a training scheme worthy of an IChemE Global Award 2020? Nominations are open until 26 June 2020.
